Massa set to return home on Monday

Felipe Massa is set to leave hospital in Budapest to return home to Brazil following the weekend.

Massa was brought out of intensive care earlier this week having undergone emergency surgery at the weekend following his accident in qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring.

With Ferrari having confirmed that Michael Schumacher will come out of retirement to replace Massa as he continues his recovery, the Brazilian is set to head home to Sao Paolo for his ongoing recuperation

“Felipe Massa's health condition is improving day by day so that a return back home could be imminent,” a short statement from Ferrari read. “If everything proceeds the best possible way, Felipe could leave Budapest on Monday to be brought to Sao Paulo do Brasil, where he will start rehabilitation.”

Exactly what I wanted to hear, if he can go home in the next few days it must mean he's going to be fine! :D All I can say is well done Felipe, kept his spirits up and now he can see the other side, brilliant. And pleasing to hear that his sense of humour is still firmly in tact after reading a couple of quotes from him. Look forward to seeing you in F1 before too long! XXX :D YAY!

I was just thinking the other day, how nice it was that ferrari and mclaren fans have not been at each others throats like previous years, until I read this blog. Come on chums - motor racing is a sport. We should not want to see someone hurt - or have springs or wheels flying at them.Is just a sport.When things go wrong like they have in the last few weeks , then all fans should unite in wishing felipe an early recovery.
